Let us appreciate his restraint in never using the word “assholes” anywhere in the paper. At the age of 84, he maintains a level of polite discipline in the face of assholes I can scarcely muster on my better days.”
“Kostoff worked in the past as a Georgia Tech affiliated researcher (or consultant or whatever the correct term is now), has 30 years of government service, and a long publication history that includes an amazing breadth of topics including neuropsychology, information science, research and development management, molecular mass spectrometry, citation analysis, competitive intelligence, natural language processing, naval engineering, text analysis, and now analysis of what assholes refuse to analyze (soon to be a new category at researchgate). He published on disruptive technologies before it was cool.”
“Okay, okay, let’s take a look at what Kostoff et al found:”
A novel best-case scenario cost-benefit analysis showed very conservatively that there are five times the number of deaths attributable to each inoculation vs those attributable to COVID-19 in the most vulnerable 65+ demographic. The risk of death from COVID-19 decreases drastically as age decreases, and the longer-term effects of the inoculations on lower age groups will increase their risk-benefit ratio, perhaps substantially.Confirmation of Vaccine-Associated Mortality – by Mathew Crawford – Rounding the Earth Newsletter (substack.com)
Highly recommended. Read both the summary and the scientific article…takes time but was worth it for me.
